Feeling Bad

I was talking with someone today about feeling bad.  Feeling bad is a result of you doing something that is not okay with you.  I have learned to look for what I am not okay with when I am feeling bad.  For example, I was complaining about my job the other day.  I love kids.  I love teaching.  I do not love the limitations of my job… the pay ceiling, the constant mandates, the redundant paperwork. 

So I have been on this search for my calling.  I have been waiting for the skies to open up and a voice from on high to tell me what I should be doing.  Then it occurred to me that when I do this job at the level of excellence everyday, I will outgrow it.  When I feel bad about my job, it isn’t the job.  It is what I am doing (or not doing) that is not okay with me.  When I give 100%, I will feel better and I will attract my dream job and become self-employed.
